Happy Thanksgiving

We wanted to share some of our Thanksgiving with you!!
The boys wrote these poems last week:
What makes a Good Thanksgiving

What makes a good Thanksgiving?
Golden Corn inviting someone to take a nibble
Stuffed turkey waiting to be gobbled
Smashed potatoes making you very lustful
That makes a good thanksgiving.
What makes a perfect Thanksgiving?
Candles' aroma surfing on waves of air.
Cookies, tasteful, makes you not want to share
Family celebrating like they are at a fair
That makes a perfect Thanksgiving.
~Aaron (age 10)

Scents of Thanksgiving
The smell of turkey roasting,
filling the house with joy.
Bright fall candles burning,
Ginger and crimson leaves
Blowing calmly in the air.
Assortments of flavors
Tiptoeing on my tongue.
Sometimes I smell perfume
that my mom wears.
But my favorite smell of thanksgiving
is the great tasting food.
~Caleb (Age 12)

The Traits of a Certain Holiday
Mouth watering, irresistible aroma,
elegant and beautiful.
The cornucopia of flavors,
Mashed potatoes,
Green beans,
All on the table.
These are the Traits of a certain Holiday.
~Micah (Age 13)

We do hope that not just this day, but that everyday finds you thankful for your many gifts. We have been blessed and it is nice to have a day that reminds us of that. Thinking of you all -

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
